3 Thoughts...

1. Holding a lead is tough when you average less than 1 line yard a carry.

2. USC's offense was actually okay on standard downs, which is surprising when you look at the rushing stats.

3. The difference in the game was that the Trojan passing game made plays when they needed to, Stanford's didn't.
